Gordon Kirkland is a winner of Canada's Stephen Leacock Award of Merit for Humour. His very first book, Justice Is Blind - And Her Dog Just Peed In My Cornflakes took the award in 2000, and his second book, Never Stand Behind a Loaded Horse won it. The 2006 Award was won by his novel, When My Mind Wanders It Brings Back Souvenirs.
His other novels of funny essays comprise I Think I'm Having One Of Those Decades (2006), I Will Be Big However, I did not Cause That Solar Eclipse (2007), Holly Jolly Frivolity (2009), along with My Bit Of Life Is Full Of Gristle (2012).
His first publication, Crossbow is a darkly comedic puzzle. Think Fargo without the wood chipper.
His next book, The Plight Before Christmas, is that the story of a family facing many comedic calamities and disasters as an early 1960's holiday season quickly approaches. That is exactly what will occur when Murphy's Law takes over the vacations and sends them careening off in several directions that are funny.
Kirkland has been forced to take a hiatus from writing shortly after the Plight Before Christmas attained #1 on the Amazon Kindle Parenting and Family Humor Bestsellers record due to illness. In 2013, he received a life-size penis transplant.
Kirkland suffered a spinal cord injury in 1990 and can be restricted to a wheelchair. His most recent book, Laughing At Fart Height Through Life includes Kirkland stories from more than his novels and magazine articles, one million newspaper columns, stage presentations, and material written for this particular book. His goal for this book is to show that, even though a individual who has a spinal cord injury may lose their awareness of feeling, they don't lose their sense of humor.
He's toured extensively throughout Canada and the United States together with his books, and for speaking engagements at writer's conferences, festivals and other occasions.
